The Bourne Identity script
Synopsis: The story of a man (Matt Damon), salvaged, near death, from the ocean by an Italian fishing boat. When he recuperates, the man suffers from total amnesia, without identity or background... except for a range of extraordinary talents in fighting, linguistic skills and self-defense that speak of a dangerous past. He sets out on a desperate search-assisted by the initially rebellious Marie (Franka Potente) - to discover who he really is, and why he's being lethally pursued by assassins.

GIANCARLO playing doctor in a greasy kitchen apron. Cutting

away the clothes. Turning THE MAN on his side. Two bullet

wounds in the back. Probing them, judging them.

Now -- GIANCARLO with a flashlight in his teeth -- TINK --

TINK -- TINK -- bullet fragments falling into a washed-out

olive jar.

Now -- something catching GIANCARLO'S EYE -- A SCAR ON THE

MAN'S HIP -- another fragment -- exacto knife cutting in --

tweezers extracting A SMALL PLASTIC TUBE, not a bullet at

all, and as it comes free --

THE MAN'S HAND SLAMS down onto GIANCARLO'S and we SMASH CUT

INTO A --

FIRST PERSON POV -- we are staring up at --

GIANCARLO:

You're awake. Can you hear me?

(we're blinking--)

You've been shot. I'm trying to

help you.

(we're trying to find

our voice--)

You were in the water. You've been

shot. It's okay now.

THE MAN:

Where am I?

GIANCARLO:

(switching to English)

You're American. I thought so.

From your teeth -- the dental work --

THE MAN:

Where am I?

GIANCARLO:

You're on a boat. A fishing boat.

Italian flag. We're out of Vietri.

(he smiles)

It's the cold that saved you. The

water. The wounds are clean. I'm

not a doctor, but the wounds, it

looks okay. It's clean.
